Flashback Friday with Fireball

We're letting mama flashback to the early 1980's today. Fireball was a young feral boy that kept showing up on mama's patio looking for food....of course there was always food there for him. Within a couple of weeks, mama had tamed him and he moved into the house.

He was definitely a "fireball" with scads of energy. He loved water and also loved to be in high places. He would almost always jump up on the shower stall door when someone was taking a shower....and would quite often join them in the shower!!!!! He spent a lot of time riding around on the family's shoulders. He might have been a total fireball, but mama says he was also a very loving cat.

Once again, please forgive the poor quality of the photos, but they have been around a looooooooooooooooooong time....:)


Have a fantastic weekend!!!!!

Sammy, Andy and Shelly

Fireball looks lovely - for a cat, of course we can't go all out in excitement as it's our job to annoy every cat we see but must admit Fireball looks like he would have been great fun to play with! Dex & Lou
